DEEP CLEANING A Disgusting Dodge Durango! Complete Disaster Car Detailing Transformation!


what’s up guys welcome back to Stauffer
Garage today’s detail is of a Dodge Durango
that is completely trashed on the inside we have our work cut out for us today
everything’s gonna get ripped out we have so much dirt in the seats there’s
dead bugs on the dashboard whoa this one’s gonna need some work so I’m
expecting eight to ten hours for this detail it’s gonna need it a little bit
more time than typical but it’s gonna turn out insane so make sure you stick
around to the very end to see the end results if you guys are new and you like
these sort of videos hit that subscribe button down below
turn on notifications so you don’t miss out on details just like this let’s go
ahead and get started Cheers I think my one tip when it comes
to vacuuming is if you have panels or covers or anything like that especially
in the back of the car where there’s spare tire wells or like tool
compartments like this one has get underneath those as well because you
never know when you’re in those areas how dirty they are until you actually
need to use them and getting them clean when you’re doing a vacuuming in general
is always a good idea and I’ll be completely honest I actually
didn’t realize this was a third road to Rango so when I got into the back of the
car and I started picking these panels up I kind of had like an oh crap moment
that there’s more extracting and detailing to do but in the end that
third row actually was pretty clean and didn’t have a ton of dirt on it so it
made actually the extraction phase pretty easy so for this detail if you can’t tell
already I started actually in the back of the car and started working my way
forward so after the vacuum was done it was time to take that third rope out of
the vehicle so that way I could really assess how much dirt was underneath in
the extraction portion that needed to be done in that back portion of the carpet now it’s time to work on the center row
which the center row was a little bit more tricky with getting the bolts out
because the way a lot of these cars work is the bolts go through the frame and
they expose the bottom portions of it so when they get slightly rusted you
actually have to pull some of that rust through and get it kind of work through
the threads which can be a little bit tricky a little bit scary but at the
same time usually a little bit of PB Blaster or just kind of slowly work in
the bolts out will make sure that you won’t break anything but I did have to
pull out instead of my three H impact I had to pull out my half-inch air tool to
get these out because they were in there big time but once I got him out I got
the middle row out and it was honestly surprising with how heavy this thing was holy shit that thing was heavy my wife
always asked me why I have so many tools for occasions like this where you don’t
know what you’re gonna need to sell like crowbars or air ratchets of every
different size they all come in handy at some point and when you don’t have
that’s when things suck in the last video and even several videos from the
past I’ve had people mention you know why did I suck up those pennies or coins
or anything in general this time guys I made sure I separated them before I
sucked them up no matter how dirty they were whereas in the past I usually just
pulled him out of the shop back at the end of the day but this time I collected
them all before so what I need you guys to do is vote in the comments below let
me know what your guess is based on what you see in this video how much change
did I find in this car and whoever guesses closest first will get a free
set of Fox clean detailing brushes once I have that Santa rode I kind of
vacuum but the floor removed all the debris from the floor itself and then I
worked up to the front of the car and the front of the car was definitely
where usually most the dirt is but the best part is when you actually get
underneath those front seats that’s where you usually find all of the fun
treasures because they fall between the center console or they get somehow
stuffed underneath the front seats this is where you find the good stuff like
Tim McGraw for instance I also want to mention that I’ve got
tons of requests from everyone from the last video that I mentioned if you live
in the Central Ohio area and you want to get your car featured on Stoffer garage
to shoot me an email that still applies so if you want to go ahead and reach out
to me please feel free to at the Stauffer garage at gmail.com I’ll have
my email in the description box below for you guys as well but I’m trying to
make sure I schedule as many of you guys as possible so I can feature your cars
so if they’re dirty and they’re disasters shoot me an email so whenever I have a customer drop of a
car that has all of the stuff still in it I usually use some sort of plastic
bag or a box and put everything in there no matter what it is unless it’s
blatantly obviously that it’s trash I put it all inside of a box and then
usually put it into the trunk after the details done for them to sort through
and kind of figure out what they want to keep at that point so that way I don’t
have to be the judge of that one tip when you’re pulling the floor
mats out of your car always try to roll them up to get all the dirt like staying
inside of them instead of spilling onto the carpet to minimize your work or if
you have a vacuum handy just go ahead and vacuum up the top of it at least
initially real quick to get the big bulk off of it before you pull out of the car
at the end of the day you’re gonna have vacuumed it anyway so if you do it in
the car out of the car you know even just a minimal level you kind of help
yourself out so now that all the seats are out of the
car the next step of the puzzle is getting the center console out of the
vehicle because one this thing is completely trashed – there’s gonna need
to be a ton of like edge work done on the carpet there because of the spills
and stuff like that so getting out of the car is usually pretty
straightforward for anybody that’s trying to do this themselves you know
it’s pretty intuitive there’s usually bolts on the side somehow underneath the
cupholders or in this case there’s some that are underneath the cigarette
lighter in the front portion of it but generally there’s some simple easy
access bolts to get to they’re usually not hidden in any way shape or form so
if you want to do this yourself it’s something that you can do pretty easily
if you kind of get your seats out of the car first now that we have the entire
inside of the car vacuum we’re going to start the extraction and cleaning up
process of the floor mats and then the seats themselves but this car had a
bunch of these rubber mats on top of the other floor mats as well I just went
ahead and sprayed in with an all-purpose cleaner and kind of let them set off to
the side and soak while I worked on the other floor mats one tool that really came in handy is
the lily brush which if you guys have not tried before it’s definitely a
really nice tool to have when you have any sort of hair whether it’s dog hair
human hair cat hair you name it if it’s in your carpet fibers it does a really
good job at getting that pulled out very very quickly
and with that being said I will actually be clearing those on my Fox clean
website so if you guys haven’t ever checked it out I sell detailing brushes
on there but I may be expanding my entire lineup to include not only lily
brushes but I have a few surprises that are coming out very very soon that I’m
excited about for you guys so for the carpet floor mats in my spray
bottle I have Chemical Guys carpet cleaner which has a nice odor eliminator
in it it also is low sudsing then I’m using my drill brush to agitate the
surface and get all of that dirt lifted up and out of the fibers before I follow
up with my extractor that just has pure hot water now for the floor maps themselves or any
carpet for that matter or cloth seats sometimes you have to do two passes and
when you do those two passes the second time try to go a little bit more slowly
over those troublesome spots so that way you make sure you truly get that
saturated with that solution to get it lifted from that fiber and the same goes
with extraction when you’re extracting take a little bit longer try to
eventually get to the point where the water coming out of it does not have any
more suds enos solution to it and is also starting to get pretty clear now it’s time to move on to the front
passenger seat and the passenger seat was not as bad as the driver’s seat but
it was still pretty nasty when it came to extraction so following the same
process we did like floor mats we’re gonna spray it down we’re gonna drill
brush and agitate it and then we’re gonna follow up with our carpet
extractor once I had the seats completely cleaned
I always try to do the base in the sides and different trim pieces last sometimes
depend on how dirty they are I’ll do those first but in this case it wasn’t
too bad to the point where I couldn’t do them after now for the creme de la creme the
driver’s seat which is obviously looking pretty nasty for this one obviously like
any carpet to start off making sure you have everything vacuumed perfectly then
following them at the same process that we did on the previous seats and for this seat I actually expected to
do two passes right off the get-go because this was a lot of oily gasoline
greasy stuff that was caked into these fibers and usually the first pass
through you’re not going to see as much sudsing from your solution which means
that you know it’s a really definitely a greasy surface and then I buy the second
pass you should see a lot more sudsing when you’re doing the drill brush
portion so for this seat I actually did three
extractor passes after I had done the drill brush portion just to make sure I
pulled out as much liquid as possible but the one thing that I get but the one
caveat to all of that is when you do cloth seats
there’s a lot of foam underneath and you have to do enough but not put it in too
much fluid inside of it because the seat itself will get too saturated but then
there’s also all of that dirt and liquid in that foam itself underneath the top
layer that it will eventually come to the surface too so it’s kind of like a
happy medium that that you have to come to when you start seeing the solution
coming into the extractor becoming clear but not quite all the way that cause
that sort of thing it’s kind of a balance that you have to take and you
kind of gain that from experience so this last extractor pour from this
second seat I’m gonna go with you who on this one now for the backs of the seats or the
trim I don’t know if I mentioned earlier but I’m using an all-purpose cleaner
this can be simple green this can be you know Chemical Guys has an all-purpose
cleaner everybody carries some sort of all-purpose cleaner and what you’re
gonna want to do is usually do about ten to one ratio with water to solution in a
spray bottle of some sort and then I’m using my bristle brushes that I got and
then I’m using my bristle brushes to just kind of work the fluid into the
surface which is slightly textured and into those nooks and crannies now for the third row I did the same
process that I did with the front seats but for the middle row I did it slightly
differently because I wanted to give you guys an option for if you’re cleaning
your seats and you don’t have an extractor which 99% of people don’t this
was a method that you could do as well to get your seats clean so I laid a
microfiber towel down across half of the seat on the front and then I’m using
Folex to spray liberally onto the surface and then a stiff bristle brush
to agitate and work it into the fibers itself the great thing about Folex is
you’re not using a ton of fluid you don’t even have to extract it from the
surface and for majority of cases I’ve been able to get a lot of stuff out it
can be a little more time consuming than extractor but it’s easy to do and if
you’re just doing this on the weekend and you don’t want to buy the extra
tools it’s a really good option but once you’ve worked it into the surface just
get a clean microfiber towel to wipe off the dirt that has been lifted to the
surface now that we have the extraction done of
the seats we’re gonna move to getting the door panels clean and for this I’m
using my all-purpose cleaner my bristle brush I always start with just cleaning
off the door panel first and then I usually follow up with cleaning the
glass and then I use my Chemical Guys silk shine as a top coat to make it look
more brilliant to make that plastic look more rich and look more like factory-new and the reason why I went into the door
panels at this point is because my steam cleaner had been heating up because we
were gonna be tackling the center console which is gunked with tons of
hardened goo and sticky stuff and that’s where the steam cleaner really comes in
handy and I have my Steam Cleaner listed in
the description box below from Amazon affiliates if you guys want to check it
out along with everything else that I use in my videos but for steam the best
part about it is it’s really really simple you’re not using any chemicals
and for certain processes like this one right here it makes it really easy to
get all this dirt and grime that’s on this center armrest off and also the cup
holder is clean that you can’t really get to easily even with a bristle brush
because it’s just so caked in there now for the center armrest I did do two
passes using my bristle brush to help as well but at the end of the day I got it
about eighty to ninety percent better than what it was but I think there had
been some that kind of leached into the surface of the plastic and the vinyl
leather that kind of just essentially discolored it permanently like I mentioned beginning this video
this is probably one of the longer details I’ve done there’s only been a
couple more that took a little bit longer but with there being so much
extraction needed to be done this one took me I’m at this stage I’m probably
about six hours into the detail already and I haven’t even started on the
carpets or wiping down the dashboard now we’re going to be moving into
extracting the carpets and I like to start with the passenger side kind of
work my way around the car and end to the driver side when you’re doing the extraction portion
when you pull out the center console no seeds this is really when you see the
reward from it and all that extra work because it makes it easier for you to
move around get into out of the vehicle and just make sure you get everything
clean from the carpet standpoint that you probably would have missed it if you
left those pieces in there now for the driver’s side it’s
definitely where the caked on dirt is this is where you kind of have to do
those two even three passes because the first pass get in that surface loosened
up a little bit so you can even extract anything the second pass is to do a
little bit more cleaning and then third pass hopefully is the last one that you
have to do but also hopefully you don’t have your car sitting for this long with
this much dirt to the point where it gets to this level now that we have the front carpets the
middle carpets we’re going to move to the back carpets to get extracted and
this is that Trump carpet that covers that little sub compartment and when you
do the drill brush portion you guys can probably see all of the slinging that
typically happens which this is going to happen regardless of how slow you go
because at some point you’re gonna make it flick somewhere that is why I wait to
do the lower trim pieces and any of the wiping down of those interior panels to
last and now that we got the lower portions
cleaned we’re gonna go wiping down the panel start at the rear and working our
way forward to the dashboard which is going to be the final piece that gets
cleaned up with everything cleaned off with my
all-purpose cleaner and covered with my top coat it is now time to do my
windshield which is the final step in the entire detail thank goodness because
this one took a whopping nine and a half hours to complete I literally worked on
this one from 3 p.m. to past midnight and then I had a little bit more to do
in the morning after everything kind of dried out but in general guys some of
these details take longer than others and because they do that’s why you don’t
see me working on the inside or the outside of the car for certain details
but thank you guys again for watching today’s video these before and after
shots showed the transformation that I think turned out insane like the seats
themselves was probably the biggest portion of it but if you guys liked
today’s detail smash that thumbs up button subscribe if you’re new and make
sure notifications are turned on so you don’t miss out on any more of these
disaster details and thank you guys again for being part of the stop for
garage crew I’ll see you guys in the next one bye guys you
